I wanted to be a paleontologist for most of my childhood.


God, I'm a nerd.

Either way I wasn't born at the right time, and I could never have been an astronaut, so I decided to go to law school instead.


Have you thought about suing for being born at the wrong time?

How about just suing for being born? Intentional infliction of emotional distress?

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a teacher. . . .

In high school I became an EMT, and wanted to be a doctor. I paid for myself through college working as a Paramedic. . .while doing rotations in various parts of the hospital I realized that I did not want to be a doctor. . . .so I finished a master's program and became a teacher. . .

. . .while working as a teacher I started doing research on immigration law because of a family thing and LOVED it. . .the more I studied the more interested I became. I visited Georgetown and became addicted to the idea of studying law. Now let's see if I can pull it off later on down the road. . . .

Most days I really, really want to be a Federal prosecutor in the criminal division of the USAO.

Occasionally though, I just want to buy my husband a pair of tight wranglers, move to a ranch in Montana, and be a mommy to a brood of six ruddy babies.

Middle School - NFL Quarterback
High School/College - Entrepreneur (possibly club owner)

I see law as an exciting means of meeting many intelligent people/potential partners (business, though romantic too I suppose) and hopefully positioning myself to build a solid capital base for when I have the connections/financial resources/opportunity to launch into my business empire. So except for being the next Dan Marino, I'm still dreaming. :lol:

Lately, I really want to be an astronaut. I blame Defying Gravity.

In general, editor/author/screenwriter.

In fantasy, host of a political version of E's "The Soup."

In reality, work with queer youth, or help direct an organization that works with queer youth in schools (like GLSEN).
